La, La, La, Lavender!Monday, March 23, 2009
I went shopping at the Houston Galleria last Sunday (and bumped into my sister-in-law and boss! Apparently it was a day to shop!). I noticed a very prominent theme. There was lavender everywhere! It wasn't a dull shade of mauve either- it was a beautiful, rosy shade of lilac. A shade that brightens up the skin from a long, dark winter and boosts you into summer. Paired with other bright shades, it loses the saccharin, and gains some sexy.

Even furniture manufacturers are jumping on the voilet bandwagon. Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams introduced a rich shade in leather for this season. Imagine a classic leather wingback in purple! This is a trend I am loving!
